'A Childhood under the Bombs'

'A Childhood under the Bombs' at Born CCM

The exhibition reflects on children’s lives during the Spanish Civil War.

Many of the elderly people you’ll see and meet in Barcelona today were children during the Spanish Civil War and that traumatic experience cut short and altered many lives and left a mark on the survivors. A new exhibition titled ‘A Childhood under the Bombs’ at the Born Centre for Culture and Memory aims to reflect on their experience. It’s divided into three sections. The first evokes the Barcelona of 1938 and the impact of bombing raids on the territory and people. The second part focuses on the children who were direct witnesses to the conflict through a sample of the drawings they produced to reflect their everyday reality. The third part of the exhibition enters the universe of adults who experienced bombings as children. Through them we’ll see the language ​​that they explored throughout their lives to express what it meant to have lived and survived the bombings that the city suffered.

The exhibition can be seen at the Born Centre for Culture and Memory from 26 September to 31 March 2019.

General admission to the Born CCM costs €4.40. Additional information is available at the following link.
